  • Who are we?

    Outfly (formerly Idea East) is London’s leading design innovation agency. Over the last 11 years we’ve been disrupting the model of traditional agencies to make something that works for the high-speed challenger brands of today.

    We work with innovation wings, social impact startups, entrepreneurs and fast-paced tech companies to help the people who need it most. We do everything from websites, marketing, business plans, pitch decks, video shoots, app designs, product designs, 3D and moving image, interiors, copywriting, message aligning, immersive experiences and social media. We don’t get briefed, we get challenged.

    Who you are!

    You’ll spend your days working closely with our Strategic Director to help our partners revolutionise their business strategies and brands. Most of your time will be spent in either brand strategy workshops or conceiving and writing pitch decks and business cases for the world’s most disruptive startups. We’ve got some pretty crazy workshops, but we’re always open to innovate so you’ll be expected to own the process, improving our offering and running the workshops yourself within the first three months.

    Our partners are fast-growing tech startups changing the game. You’ll need to be able to understand complicated concepts quickly, the big picture that connects them, and provide insights to help them clarify their message and position.
